Product description


The LA40 is a low noise and powerful actuator which is available in a 1,500 N, 4,000 N, 6,000 N and an 8,000 N version.

Based on the extensive knowledge and experience from previous actuator families, LINAK has developed new gear and braking principles that improve the efficiency of the new LA40.

These innovative solutions are covered by several patents.

Equipped with a socket for exchangeable cables, the LA40 has the same flexibility as previous families, and existing minifit cables can be used.

The LA40 is designed for a wide range of applications within both the medical and beds market such as, e.g., care and hospital beds, couches, and dental chairs.

The LA40 can be ordered with an optional spline function (push only) and/or quick release.
